    It just is, no explanation needed.

    Check out bassresource.com , browse it on mobile.

    I'm on an iPhone.

    Really? I find the mobile site sufficient for browsing o my iPhone. It's snappy, easy to reply, and everything is at your fingertips.

    Buy Tapatalk from App Store, it's a lot better.

    browse bassresource.com on your iphone then tell me what you think.

    btw, i might sound like an asscraft, but atleast I'm doing it for the good of MR.

    mods, check out that site i mentioned, then compare it to MR mobile. You will know exactly why MR mobile is terrible in 2 mins tops.

    My personal opinion is that the MR mobile interface is not the best, but it's better than other sites. I myself use Tapatalk if I browse from my iPhone, but very rarely I do that.

    I wanted to test the site you suggested on Android, but it failed to detect my phone as a mobile device and I was sent to the full site. Failed usability.

    Oh I agree. MR mobile is so bad I don't use it.

    Macrumors mobile is irrelevant because tapatalk is AWESOME.

    I might be in the minority here but I don't think it's that bad also. I in fact like it. When quickly checking in from my iPhone, I'm not looking for a "full browser experience". Maybe on my iPad or MBP, but from my phone. I'm just looking for a quick method of getting the latest news and posts. It works well for me.

    Yeah, Tapatalk is pretty good. Sometimes it shows duplicate threads but besides that, it is a good app. I use it for MR and 4 other forums I browse.

    I like Macrumors mobile on my iPod touch. I can get the latest news and read posts.

    I think perhaps there's some confusion in this thread over what exactly is being addressed. Are we talking about the article side of the mobile site (custom coding) or the forum side (a purchased product which even we don't like)?

    I think that the article side of things is excellent but the forum side is lacking.
